Unique silk and felt with a Canberra feel

25 September, 2013

Old Bus Depot Markets Stallholder, Creative SilkLynne Sanders has been getting creative for quite some time, since our very first market back in 1994 actually. And she has some great ways to accessorise with her Creative Silk range of hand-rolled merino felted scarves and wraps incorporating silks, exotic fibres and yarns. Her range features hand painted silks which she then felts onto creating beautiful pieces, often with an Australiana theme.

Pieces featuring Canberra’s floral emblem, the Bluebell, are popular particularly with visitors to Canberra. Lynne is Canberra based and does all the work herself. Her husband, Terry, is often on site at the markets on Sundays, so you can pop in and see Lynne or Terry for some unique silk and felt accessories this spring.
